Professional Roof Repair For Matteson Homes After A Storm

Matteson homeowners know that storms, including some extreme weather, can tear through a home quickly. The results can run from a few shingles being pulled off the eaves of a roof, to the complete loss of everything from the tiles down to leaving the beams and trusses exposed to the sky.

When it happens, Matteson roof repair needs accomplishing as quickly as possible. SERVPRO technicians can perform every task needed to protect the home from the initial storm damage to reducing the risks from exposure to further weather issues and other problems like animal and insect intrusions.

Installing a new roof begins with its infrastructure, and that means new roof sheathing on every section affected by the storm. The sheathing is also sometimes referred to as decking. Regardless of the term, these are the large, flat pieces that block the roof support structure from exposure. The material used is nearly always wood. Among the more popular sheathing, we use for area homes are Oriented Strand Board or OSB and plywood.

OSB sheets are thinner and more cost-efficient than plywood, but still tough enough to resist breakage. They function equally well as plywood when used on steeper roofs that use light roofing tiles and generally have less foot traffic due to the high slope of the roof.

SERVPRO roofers use plywood on roofs with a low slope that usually draws more traffic or when there are heavier tiles in use such as clay, slate, or even concrete. Plywood is more expensive than OSB, but the thicker panels are needed for these tiles and can last for decades when not exposed to the weather.

Before laying down new sheathing, our project manager checks to make certain that the materials we use meet city building codes and any HOA requirements. In some cases, those rules can mean everything from using only plywood in a particular neighborhood to a restriction on certain kinds of tile.

After a storm, SERVPRO of Matteson – Homewood moves quickly to install a new roof so that homeowners here and in Country Club Hills, Flossmoor, and Olympia Fields can feel safe and secure once more. To get the process started with your residence, call us today at (708) 747-9925.
